Scale matters: range of numbers

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Explore the use of scale on a number line. Select a ruler displaying a scale such as ones, tenths or hundredths. Look at a pair of numbers marked on a number line. Identify the number corresponding to another point. Or locate another point on the number line to complete a series of three numbers. Apply a marked scale to help you estimate the relative distances. This learning object is a combination of four objects in a series of seven objects.
1. Students apply efficient multiplicative or additive strategies to locate numbers on a given scale.
2. Students use a scale to measure discrete quantities.
3. Students locate numbers (including negative numbers) accurately on a continuous scale.
4. Students identify how variations in unit size relate proportionally to the number of units that will fit into a given space.
